Ojibwe Kahoot Competition set

An Ojibwe Kahoot Competition is planned for 5 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the Lake Bemidji State Park visitor center.

In Bemidji and the surrounding communities, Ojibwe language inclusion is becoming more and more common through grassroots efforts like the Bemidji Ojibwe Language Project, a press release said.

A naturalist will help attendees learn a selection of Ojibwe words related to things that can be found in the park. They will then test the language learning in a Kahoot competition. Winners receive bragging rights and a prize, the release said. The recurring program will have a new theme at each event. No prior knowledge of the Ojibwe language is required and the program is ideal for anyone. An electronic device capable of connecting to WiFi is required for the activity.
